2D Video

One swing is viewed simultaneously from two angles using a Canon GL2 camera – one view from the “Caddy” and one from the “Target Line”.

GEARS 3D (coming soon!)

Measurements, not estimates

Most systems rely on low resolution approximations of swing data, with algorithmic estimates filling in the gaps. GEARS provides hard data, actually measuring the entire swing as it unfolds.

Data. Lots of it.

GEARS analyzes over 600 images per swing, in less than a second. Because both the grip and head are tracked, that data provides significant insight into a swing, even including shaft deflection—information that cannot be obtained by tracking the grip alone.

Almost limitless detail is provided in this 3D video compared to the 2D video analysis. We’ll use this technique to find variations in backswing sequencing by measuring movement in three planes of freedom.

Optical motion tracking

– GEARS is an optical (camera-based) tracking system, powered by 8 ultra-HD (1.7 megapixel) cameras running at 360 frames per second. It offers numerous advantages over other approaches, including:

– Track any club, with snap-on club mounts
– Measurements as fine as 0.2 mm
– No wires attached to the user
– Golf ball detection, for pinpoint impact location information
– Simple system setup
– “Absolute positioning,” with zero drift (unlike inertial systems)

High Frame Rate Video

A Casio Exilim EX-F1 camera is used to capture up to 1200 frames per second! This is very similar to cameras used on the PGA Tour broadcasts.

“When I was 12, my father brought out his Bell & Howell reel-to-reel 8mm camera to film my buddies and me playing golf at the municipal course. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I watched that film trying to analyze why I wasn’t as good as the other guys in the group. Since then, I have always been dedicated to using the most sophisticated ways to measure, gather and compare data. When players ask me why I need all this high tech equipment, my answer is, “Why guess when you can measure?” You see, the means to establishing priorities is guided by the data the diagnostic tools provide. Without them, improving at golf it is at best, a blind struggle.” Ron Gring
